In the distance a couple are strolling the beach barefoot, crazy boys are submerged in cold ocean water, a women is posing for the perfect shot, men are un-afraid to hold hands, a long gaze and gentle embrace are taking place, brothers are awaiting a wave to splash upon them, ships are sailing the Pacific's sunny salty breeze with a view of the boardwalk and Monterey Mountains. In the distance people are screaming in delight as their senses are peeked by thrill rides. Seagulls are culling for food and water is lapping at sand. In this moment I'm euphoric with all I am surrounded by especially the love radiating from my family as we enjoy our getaway in Santa Cruz .

Have you ever had a book that you pick up read a few pages put it away for awhile and then later pick it up again? The same goes for a course of study your so excited to start and then can't follow through with. This is my scenario with Yogi Cameron's the one plan. The off and on with trying to get grounded into this book had nothing to do with it's content, but my own. Until very recently I had my mind clouded often by the influence of alcohol. I wasn't a stumbling drunk or someone who started the day of with it but consumption still consumed me. Why I chose to be toxic in my mind body and spirit I do not know and I will not blame hereditary alcoholism. There is such a truth I do know and that is my husband and I have made a commitment to ourselves and children that we will never go back to that which was so blinding. Seems I have gotten of course but it leads me to getting back into the course. I picked up the book again, and now with my new found self I can begin.
Let me introduce you to the one plan.
